Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Furthur Floyd - 'Time'

I really enjoy Furthur's rendition of this tune as well. This band rocks and if anyone other than PF can perform Time and do it justice, its these guys!

I consider their PF covers as an homage to their psychedelic brethren across the pond. Their first albums came out the same year, both used LSD in the formative years, etc.

p.s. Furthur is playing Outside Lands Festival in GG Park on Aug 14 and they have a West Coast tour starting Sep 16, though the closest they will come is Santa Barbara

p.p.s. saw them in February and just last night and the band is putting out a more consistent energy. phil was so on!

DP - interesting parallels between early Dead and Floyd; I had never thought about that before. Thanks for the West Coast dates... unfortunately family life prevents me from being able to spend a full day at the GG Park fest. I can sneak in a night concert once in a while, but disappearing from the family for an entire weekend day... well the 'price' is just too dear if you know what I mean. Same rationale for not being able to hit Santa Barbara. Life gets in the way sometimes...

Glad you enjoyed last night's show - I'll have to stream it.
